Default Ask Beate - Liquid Glue and Glitter

Leslie knew about the technique Maria was asking about and emailed me her answer:

Quote:
In response to Maria who asked you about my graduated glitter technique in Australia. The trick is to fill your entire image(a good open design is best)in with Plexi glue right to the edges, quite thickly with no gaps. Start with the darker colour glitter first and tap on a little at the base of your image or in the case of a flower, at the centre then tap off any excess away from the glue. The middle colour is next and tap off over the dark colour and finally finish off with the lightest colour. The effect is a gorgeous shaded image which is sparkly and rich. I hope this helps Maria or she could contact me via email if she likes.I have a papercraft shop in Australia and I am known locally as the Glitter Queen!

In case anyone wants to contact her, Leslie's username is Lesley Bieniak. Just send her a pm.


Thanks to Leslie for her response.

Here is another response to this question from "need to retire":

Quote:
I have seen the technique regarding using fine glitter. Stamp your image and emboss the outline. I use a product called Plexi Glue. Using a very fine tip put a small amount on the spot where you want the darkest colour, then sprinkle generously with the glitter. Keep repeating with the lighter glitter colours until you have the desired effect. I does look amazing
